After that, she quickly received offers for roles in Hollywood films, such as Walter Hill’s 1978 crime thriller The Driver. Also, she had previously turned down the chance to star in films like The Other Side of Midnight. She had described Hollywood as a “city of fiction” and said, “I’m not an American. I didn’t grow up with that will to win an award.” Truffaut, on the other hand, said, “France is too small for her. I think Isabelle is made for American cinema.” She agreed to make The Driver because she was an admirer of Hill’s first film Hard Times.

She played Lucy in the German director Werner Herzog’s 1979 remake of Nosferatu which was well-received critically and performed well at box offices in Europe. Roger Ebert loved the film, calling Herzog’s casting of Adjani one of his “masterstrokes” in the film. He wrote that she “is used here not only for her facial perfection but for her curious quality of seeming to exist on an ethereal plane.” The cast and the crew filmed both English- and German-language versions simultaneously upon request of 20th Century Fox, the American distributor, as Kinski and Ganz could act more confidently in their native language.

Additionally, Adjani released the French pop album Pull marine, written and produced by Serge Gainsbourg. She starred in a music video for the hit title song, “Pull Marine”, which was directed by Luc Besson. In the year 1988, she co-produced and starred in a biopic of the sculptor Camille Claudel. Eventually, she received her fourth César for the 1994 film Queen Margot, an ensemble epic directed by Patrice Chéreau.

Moreover, she received her fifth César for Skirt Day (2009), the most that any actress has received. The film features her as a middle school teacher in a troubled French suburb who takes her class hostage when she accidentally fires off a gun she found on one of her students.
